PROJECT LIFESAVER

Program finds those lost, suffering from mental illness By Wes Mayer wesley@newnan.com

T

he rescue of 78-year-old Eleanor Alexander after she was missing for four days should remind local residents of a monitoring program offered by the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, authorities say. Project Lifesaver is designed to monitor and track the location of participants who may have a mental disease like dementia or Alzheimer’s. The program boasts an average discovery time of less than 30 minutes after trackers arrive on scene, according to Lt. Stephen Crook. Receivers can detect the exact location of the transmitters from one mile away on the ground, or five miles away from the air. The system includes a transmitter fastened to the participant, and is usually worn like a watch

or bracelet, Crook said. The transmitter’s batteries must be checked every day because they send a signal to receivers every second. The CCSO supplies these transmitters to participants for free, Crook said, but a monthly donation is requested in order to maintain supplies and equipment. Although they do not require caregivers to pay, the receivers come with guidelines and can be discontinued if the rules are broken. The key requirement to join the program requires the participants to be under 24-hour care, Crook said. Caregivers must check the transmitter’s batteries each day and maintain a log of the results. Crook said the 24-hour care is also mandatory because if participants manage to cut off the wristband or are left alone for too long, it becomes ineffective. “T he average huma n wa l ks four miles per hour,” Crook said.

“Because of that, patients need to be monitored at all hours of the day. Caregivers can’t go shopping for a few hours and leave the participant alone, because, by then, the participant might be long gone.” Officers are trained to pinpoint participants’ exact locations with receivers and antennas. Three deputies at the sheriff’s office, Crook, Corporal Jamie Hickson and Corporal Mike Lanier, are trained to search for Project Lifesaver participants. Jay Jones, Coweta County emergency management director, also has a receiver. The CCSO has had this program since 2005, but has only had 20 participants since it was introduced. Presently, there are only three Project Lifesaver participants in the county, but the CCSO does have an ample supply of transmitters, Crook said.

‘Ghost Paths’

London photographer visits McIntosh Reserve

Elizabeth Waight is using her skills as a photographer and a scholar to recapture the removal of Indians from Georgia in the 19th century. Photos BY JEFF BISHOP

This goes back to what I was saying about how history can essentially be rewritten when there is little physical evidence to support the truth. I hope that this project will help to recall the past and show that memory is not easily defeated and can be shared by those wishing to tread on old ways with new feet.

With misty skies around her, Elizabeth Waight gazes at the reconstruction of the home where Chief William McIntosh was living when he was murdered at McIntosh Reserve.

Part of project on Indian removal By Jeff Bishop Special to The NEWNAN Times-Herald

Newnan recently served as the base of operations for a London photographer interested in the story of Indian removal from the Southeast. Elizabeth Waight said she planned the trip to the South to coincide with the 175th anniversary of the Cherokee removal from Northwest Georgia. She arrived a few weeks ago at Hartsfield and began photographing at the McIntosh Reserve on the Coweta/Carroll County border the next day. “That place really speaks to me. You can feel what happened there,” she said. Her project, a photo exhibition named “Ghost Paths,” is part of her master of arts thesis for the University of Westminster. “I knew that I wanted to explore how photography can be used to conjure things no longer there but that still mat-

ter, and that I wanted this somehow to relate to the story of American colonization and its repercussions,” said Waight. “The project evolved out of these two ideas.” W hile staying in Newnan, Waight made her plans to travel to Indian sites in Cedartown, Cave Spring, Rome, Calhoun, Chatsworth a nd in Cherokee, N.C., and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There also were plans to travel along the length of the Trail of Tears, all the way to Oklahoma. “I’ve never been to the Deep South, but I spent a year of my B.A. at the University of California, where I started at UCLA, but quickly realized that it wasn’t an environment for me, and I transferred to Santa Cruz,” she said. “I chose America for this project as during my B.A. I realized that in school we hadn’t been taught anything at all about how much the New World had cost

the old one and, of course, that cost is still mounting. I entered into photojournalism because I want to speak out about these things.” Photography, according to Waight, “has many facets and inherent contradictions,” but ultimately she thinks it “makes the world a more accessible place.” “We can enjoy its aesthetic or learn from it as a social document,” she said. “Of course, photography is much more successful at describing the surface of the world than it is at entirely conveying truth and meaning, but it is an excellent tool for exploration. Where photography meets with other genres and ideas — in the case of Ghost Paths this will primarily be a range of text that will at times explain but also contradict the images; it becomes a more viable and intriguing photographic form.”

Fresh from the

Garden to the Table Family Features

Whether you grow your own vegetables or shop the produce aisle in your grocery store, garden-fresh vegetables add beautiful color and great taste to the table. Ree Drummond, known to her fans as The Pioneer Woman, is raising four active kids on a working cattle ranch in Okla­homa and has written two best-selling cookbooks. Ree Drummond She says she loves to find new ways to put more delicious veggies on her family’s table. “I get so excited about my garden — maybe a little too excited!” Drummond says. “Sometimes I literally have vege­ tables coming out my ears. Fortunately, I’ve got four kids who love to pick just about any­thing I plant, so every­thing gets harvested on time — if not a little earlier.” “When I bring those veggies into my kitchen, nothing shows off their fresh flavor like a little bit of butter — or, even better, Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. I love this product because it comes in pre-measured, one-quarter cup sticks of butter. That makes prep easier, because so many of my recipes, like my Pasta Primavera, call for just 2 to 4 table­spoons of butter.” If you don’t have a vegetable garden or can’t always get fresh produce, don’t despair. Flash-frozen vegetables retain much of their flavor and nutrient value. Thaw vegetables before using them in these recipes, or just heat them through and toss with high-quality butter for an easy side dish. When they taste this good, kids will be saying, “More veggies, please!”

HE often chooses those long shorts that go below the knee, usually plaid, and paired with a Hawaiian shirt. We tr y to ma ke him wea r shoes. But they are set — with clothes I mean.

Peace Boxes on display at Centre

Young Artists, Summer Focus participate B

egun by a New York artist in 2006, the Peace Box project has had many different flavors as it has unfurled. L oca l ly, t he projec t h a s involved two groups of young people, as well as a church and a department store. Now the boxes are on display at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts on Lower Fayetteville Road. One of the Centre’s galleries is filled with the boxes. Along one wall are the words “The Peace Project.” Also on display are two boxes created by Franck de Las Mercedes, the artist who envisioned and launched the Peace Box effort. T hose de L a s Mercede s boxes have been donated to the Centre’s permanent collection. Belk at Ashley Park donated shirt boxes which were covered in white paper and then decorated with peace themes by students in the Young Artists program through the Coweta County Recreation Department and the Summer Focus participants in Luthersville. Summer Focus is held each summer by the American Union Relief Society — offering educational experiences, recreation and a noon meal three days a week at the Luthersville Municipal Complex. The overall project locally was sponsored by Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church in Lone Oak. Seven years ago, de Las Mercedes began painting and sending the boxes from his small studio in a New York City suburb in New Jersey to anyone who asks for one more than seven years ago. The artist was born in Nicaragua and grew up in New York City. “To date there have been 12,300 boxes sent — and counting,” said Nicola Blount, director of FdLM Studio. Several months ago, a member at Allen-Lee requested a box. The box — and the con-

cept behind it — morphed into a much larger project. Church members Nancy Lee and Winston Skinner, who is a TimesHerald staff member, were assigned to plan a Fantastic Fifth Sunday service. That service became Peace Box Sunday with boxes being displayed, and the youthful artists who created the winning entries being recognized. A hot dog lunch followed the service. The Best in Show ribbon went to Amelia Rivers, a Young Artist. Her design incorporated a place she has visited in New Zealand and the idea of finding places of peace. Rivers, 13, ref lected on the New Zealand experience. “We saw such amazing things, such beautiful landscapes, such nice people,” she said. Her box design includes a peace sign modified to show the islands in New Zealand where she and her family visited. Surrounding the focal point on the box are names of people she met during her sojourn. Rivers said she found New Zea la nd “a peacef u l place where I could feel at home.” This past year was Rivers’ first to take art from Bette Hickman, who has taught the Young

Artists for years. “She makes it so much fun. She always has room for more ideas,” the teen artist said. “When we’re finished, she encourages us to add more.” Summer Focus winners were Aliyah Sewell, first; Kaiya Carlton, second; and Rachel Philpot, second. In addition to the best-in-show, ribbons presented to Young Artists were, first, Aileen Cox; second, Mikaylee Bonner and Taitum Boston. Honorable mention boxes were also chosen. Judges were A l len-L ee members Susa n Banks and Lynn Skinner and Chad Hill, the church’s pastor. Hick m a n spent a day i n Luthersville leading the Summer Focus participants through the steps to design and create a Peace Box. She also attended the service at Allen-Lee, where she spoke and was presented with a gift from the church. Hill talked about the Peace Box project during his sermon. “It was designed to make us think about peace, and that’s what it did with the children,” he said. “We made a difference.” Hill said peace is “fragile … something we have to work for.” de Las Mercedes created the Peace Box project somewhat

by accident. Hill said the artist was cleaning his brushes on boxes that he would then use to mail more traditional artistic pieces. When de Las Mercedes took a paint splattered box to the post office to mail, the clerk “commented on the box, how wonderful it was,” Hill said. The experience made de Las Mercedes think about “how the power of art interrupted somebody’s daily routine,” Hill said. While boxes generally made people want to see Photos by Winston Skinner what is inside, de Las Mercedes saw that “here the actual gift is Amelia Rivers is all smiles after her Peace Box was selected as Best in Show by Allen-Lee UMC judges. The box has a place of honor in the on the outside of the box,” Hill Centre exhibit. noted. de Las Mercedes then decided to pair the brightly colored boxes with the concept of peace. “He wanted you to look at the box and to think about peace. He wanted nothing to be in the box because peace is nothing, but peace is everything,” the pastor reflected. In his June 30 sermon, Hill said peace comes from Jesus Christ and can be shared by those who follow Him. “How would we obtain this peace?” he asked. “It starts out with us.” He pondered the significance of the boxes being empty. He said adults often fill the boxes of their lives with negative things — hatred, resentment, anger. “We have to empty our boxes at the feet of Jesus,” Hill said. “Share love to the world, * and we can change the world. We can be peace.” *Sale Ends 8/31/13. Minimum purchase of $250.

Ghost Paths Continued from page 1

The project, which can be seen in process as she travel s t he Tr a i l of Te a r s at g host pat h s .t u mbl r.com , is about “relaying the sensations of the journey as an exploration of what I’m experiencing on the trail,” Waight said. “My aim is to keep the work open so that the audience can experience their own persona l jou r ney rat her t ha n being told how to feel when they look at the photographs,” said Waight. O n l i n e re s ou rc e s , s uc h a s t he Nat ion a l Pa rk Service website and “Cherokee Heritage Trails Guidebook” by Brett Riggs and Barbara Duncan, have helped Waight locate sections of the trail least touched by modern life. “I’ve also been given lots of help and advice from the Georgia chapter of the Trail of Tears Association, which has been invaluable,” she said. “I possibly shouldn’t have read Bill Bryson’s ‘A Walk in the Woods,’ as I aim to photograph a long the Appa lachian Trail, but at least I now have some wildlife tactics at the ready, although how easy these will be in the face of a real life hungry bear or angry copperhead is anyone’s guess!” Waight did encounter some bears at Clingman’s Dome one weekend, but they “kept a safe distance,” she said. Waight said they do not have bears in England. “The most difficult aspect has been trying to organize in advance how I will get to and from the trail sections, and if I can send some of my things on ahead, so that I can comfortably carry the photographic equipment, especially as I plan to do some of the trail by canoe and on horseback,” she said. “I have help in Georgia and hopefully can work the rest out state by state.”

London photographer Elizabeth Waight visits Miss Cherokee, Christy Kingfisher, at the Chief Vann House.

Waight plans to be on the Trail of Tears for approximately six weeks. “My plan is to sta r t i n t he Appa lachian Mountains in Georgia and North Carolina to give a visual representation of how t he Cherokee wou ld h ave experienced this area before Removal and then to follow the Trail all the way to Oklahoma,” said Waight. “I will utilize visual clues and symbolism to capture the atmosphere and sensations of the trail and will also document actual physical tracks left on the landscape, such as the ruts made by the wagons at the Unicoi Turnpike.” Her friends back in London were “a little nervous of the fact that I will be traveling alone on what is essentially a speculative project that could lead me anywhere,” she said. “But they know that I have backpacked my way around the world with nothing more practical than a positive outlook — so they trust that I will look after myself.” Waight said she has been surprised “by how little most people k now about India n Removal and especially the Trail of Tears. This goes back to what I was saying about how history can essentially be rewritten when there is little physical evidence to sup-

port the truth. I hope that this project will help to recall the past and show that memory is not easily defeated and can be shared by those wishing to tread on old ways with new feet.” The work will be ex hibited in London in September at the P3 Ambika gallery,

but Waight said she “would very much like the exhibition to extend to other venues so that the Cherokee story can be remembered and told far
